We just got back from 3 weeks in Greece and loved Honeymoon Petra! The location is perfect (imerovigli is about a 10 minute walk from fira so you are out of the tourist jam. Arguably the best view of the sunset on santorini. The views were incredible! Rooms very well appointed. The hotel spreads out down a hill. Hint ask for a room on the lower cliffs (on the ocean side of the walkway). We stayed in the Honeymoon suite and it was a duplex with two areas to sunbathe and a huge jacuzzi tub! We were nervous about taking our kids to an amazing honeymoon spot but our kids were pretty chill and the staff was super nice to them. The owner of the hotel yannis is around a very interesting guy he also owns 4 boats which you can rent at favorable prices. We went out with yannis on his 41 foot power boat and this is HIGHLY recommended. Santorini by water is incredible and he will take you to some neat places. The hotel also does 4 nights on a boat and rest in the hotel which you will want to consider. We spent 4 days out in the water in our 3 weeks in Greece and they were some of the best times we had.
The staff was very competent and very nice. Breakfasts were good. We were able to walk to many restaurants but often had lunch at the hotel (very good) by the gorgeous pool. The best we had was la maison.
Hint.. Oia is a beautiful town that what seems like all tourists on santorini have discovered. Everyone lands there for the sunset. Beautiful town with simply too many tourists. Your best bet is to head their early. Try dinner in the Oia harbor at dimitris or sunset (side by side) walk down a lot of steps take a donkey back up or even better have the restaurant call a taxi to take you back to the hotel.
Fantastic place to stay in santorini!
